Rick proudly served our country in the U.S. Navy for 25 years. He enjoyed racing cars, working on cars and was a perfectionist when it came to his work as a printer. Rick will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
He is preceded in death by his parents and one brother, William Kandler.
Rick is survived by his wife, Susan (Turner) Kandler of the home; four sons: Rick Kandler of Branson, Missouri, Mark Kandler and wife Peggy of California, Thomas Kandler and wife Kathleen of Nixa, Missouri, and James Kandler and wife Gaile of California; eight grandchildren: Savannah, Kara, Sarah, Dylan, Brianna, Sean, Jonathan, and Sabrina; and three great-grandchildren: Emmett, Noah, and Kyndra Rose.
No services are planned at this time. In lieu of flowers, a memorial contribution may be made in Rick’s name to the Veteran’s Association.
